Argentina vs Colombia Match Report
Di Maria is probably in his best form in national jersey
Di Maria is playing his best ever football tournament for his country. Although, he has been amazing since past couple of years in club as well as national jersey, but this is probably the best match Di Maria has ever played. The right wing is equally important and Di Maria was the only man, who was able to handle this position with his sophisticated gameplay. His speedy run was the nightmare for the Colombian defense. Although, he got four corners, yet, he failed to make anything. However, his overall performance was enough for Argentina to score at least one goal in the first half.
Argentine forwards need to score
What does a team need to win when they have Messi, Di Maria, Aguero, Pastore and MAscherano in the squad? But, Argentina’s full time score may change this thought since after 90 minutes, Colombians were fighting to win as the scoreboard was having 0-0. Although, Messi, Di MAria, Pastore, Aguero have got couple of chances but they failed to Colombian defense and goalkeeper. Basically, the attack vs defense match ended up with a 0-0 draw. If the same thing will continue in teh semifinal, they may face problems, just like quarter final.

If Colombia has survived throughout the match, Ospina has the maximum credit since some sure shoot goals were blocked by this Colombian wall. He played a vital role in this match from the first minute. In fact, he was much confident in one-against-one situations. In the entire game, he made only one mistake but that didn’t create any problem. This was very difficult to block some players like Messi, Di Maria, Tevez etc. But, Ospina did everything successfully.
Masche still has football left in him
There is nothing to say about this man, who can handle midfield as well as defense one handedly. Mascherano played brilliantly in Argentina vs Colombia match of Copa America quarter final. Although, they didn’t score but Gago, Aguero, Messi, Di Maria got balls from him one after one. This man was great in group stage matches and now, he has become even more crucial for Argentina.
